Ruth Fellowes has expertise and postgraduate training in child and family health. She has been working in the field of ADHD and learning difficulties for over 10 years now, firstly as a Neurodevelopmental therapist, but then focusing primarily on nutrition, and food as medicine as she recognised just how foundational diet is for kids who are struggling. With adults the focus is more on the gut-brain connection, and how gut health affects mood, stress and sleep. Ruth practices out of East Maitland NSW consulting in nutritional and herbal medicine and is also a public speaker, trainer, educator and advocate for low-to-no-additives in our diet.

I am a qualified naturopath and clinical nutritionist, with a wealth of experience in health spanning over 40 years. In 1976, I completed a Bachelor of Science degree with Honours at Monash University, majoring in Biochemistry and Microbiology. After I completed my honours research year, I was employed by the Royal Women’s Hospital located in Melbourne, Australia, as a bacteriologist. I worked there for several years before leaving to start a family. After my children married, when I should have considered retirement, I embarked on a 4-year full-time Bachelor of Health Science Degree (Naturopathy) course at Torrens University. My unique tertiary university education and clinical experience have provided me with the knowledge and passion to treat such conditions as bacterial and yeast overgrowth in the digestive system, such as SIBO and IBS, and other gut complaints. Indeed, I am one of a select group of practitioners who have been approved by sibodoctor.com and sibotest.com. I have also embarked on a comprehensive course of over 200 hours in Functional Immunology. This has been an invaluable course among others I have done, to address autoimmune issues such as the thyroid disorder, Hashimoto's. Furthermore, owing to the fact that I have been fortunate to train under the giants in genetics and nutrigenomics, such as Dr Ben Lynch, a pioneer and global authority in this field, and Australian experts, Dr Denise Furness, PhD, geneticist and nutritionist, and Carolyn Ludowsky of MTHFR Support, I am able to assess your genetic make-up and how this may impact your health, fertility, and other chronic conditions. Indeed, I am passionate about helping couples achieve optimum health and wellness to improve their chances for natural conception and healthy pregnancy outcomes. My goal is to improve your health, well-being and quality of life, by assisting you with evidenced-based dietary advice, lifestyle changes, natural medicines and nutritional supplementation. With my knowledge of genetics and nutrigenomics, immunology, and my extensive knowledge of biochemical pathways, microbiology and physiological processes of the body, I can recommend and design a nutritional and lifestyle program that suits your unique genetic profile and your clinical history. As a solution-oriented health detective with a passion and knowledge in nutritional biochemistry, immunology and the microbiome, I seek to uncover and treat any underlying causes to your health conditions, rather than merely concentrating on alleviating the presenting symptoms. Ultimately, while the chances of totally changing the mindset of the general population is unlikely, I am determined to IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF ONE INDIVIDUAL AT A TIME.
The power of nutrition is very personal to me. After implementing healthy nutritional lifestyle habits, I reversed my symptoms of an autoimmune disease and improved my health. Today as a certified nutritionist (plant based nutrition is my specialty and passion), detox specialist, and proponent of mindful eating habits, I use science based nutritional evaluations and focused, personalized consulting to help others discover health, vitality and well-being. Encouraging positive lifestyle habits, wholesome foods choices and re-balancing the body with the right nutritional supplements, I am on a mission to help people recover their health and feel amazing!

Hi I’m Stephanie Malouf and I’m dedicated to helping people create healthy relationships with food in order to live a healthy and happy life. Whether it be after years of forming bad eating habits or establishing good ones early on in life. After healing my own body through diet and experiencing first hand the incredible healing powers of food, it wanted to educate others on how to do the same. This led me to completing a Bachelor of Health Science; Nutritional Medicine and setting up my own private practice. Having worked with hundreds of clients particularly with weight loss, I have come to understand there are two key parts to having a healthy relationship with food; education and a healthy relationship with yourself with a positive mindset. Food is one life’s greatest pleasures and whilst this can be a positive thing, it can also be used to fill a void and as a distraction from less pleasurable emotions. Your physical health is a direct reflection of how you think, feel and nourish yourself. I have undertaken further studies in the field of psychology in order to help my clients achieve a positive mindset, overcome limiting beliefs and break negative habits. This is often the missing link to an effective long term weight loss and health program and a key driver of stress and emotional eating as well as poor digestion, energy and chronic health issues.
